United States District Court, D. Oregon, Medford Division
February 5, 2014
NANCY FERNLUND, et al., Plaintiffs,
TRANSCANADA USA SERVICES INC., et al., Defendants.
OWEN M. PANNER, District Judge.
Magistrate Judge Mark D. Clarke filed a Report and Recommendation (R&R), and the matter is now before this court. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b) (1) (B), Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b). Although no objections have been filed, this court reviews legal principles de novo. See Lorin Corp. v. Goto & Co., Ltd. , 700 F.2d 1202, 1206 (8th Cir. 1983).
I agree with the R&R that defendants' motion to dismiss should. be denied. The memorandum submitted by defendant. Norwest Pipeline LLC (#57) is not an objection to the R&R and does not affect my decision to adopt the R&R.
Magistrate Judge Clarke's Report and Recommendation (#54) is adopted. Defendants' motion to dismiss (#9) is denied.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
